“A great opportunity to catch up with friends in the industry, in person, after such a long time. We’re really looking forward to the afternoon at The Oval.”

Andrew Downes – Partner PS Interiors


“Hammer Carpets are very pleased to support the reconnection event. We feel sure after several months of working from home, that it is time to start reconnecting with industry friends and colleagues. Our contract sector is usually a vibrant, creative, and exciting sector to be a part of and I think we have all missed this. Whilst we need to keep our feet on the ground in these difficult times, now is the time to start getting proactive again. We are looking forward to more positive times ahead.”

Charles Rae – UK Sales Director Hammer Carpets


“All parts of our sector need to work together now to start the process of recovery, and Reconnection is a brilliant example of how we can do this.”

Jeremy Stein – Managing Director, BCFA


“Concept Contract are proud to be part of the Reconnection event with a great group of like-minded sponsors, media partners and high-profile industry organisations to bring together a fun, laid back day for the industry to get back together in a safe and secure place.”

Warren Stimson – Director Concept Contract Furnishings


“At last, a physical event to put in the diary! How wonderful to have the opportunity to all get together in a wide-open space to meet, talk, and reconnect. Can’t wait.”

Sophie Harper – Editor, SPACE
